Travelogue: Palm Springs (with kids)

Last week, we road tripped our way across the state to spend four nights in Palm Springs—a plan hatched after the kids and I learned that Aron would be attending a Urology conference at a super kid-friendly hotel there. We tagged along, spending most of our time in the pool while he went to meetings, making the most of any free time together.

I’ve been to Palm Springs many times before—mostly when I’d go with my parents from Los Angeles (I had my first “date” there), but most recently on a girls’ weekend and a press trip. Aron and I brought Hudson once, around the holidays, but that was long ago. This is all to say that Palm Springs with kids was a new experience. Here’s how it went…

Halloween: Costumes for Couples

I fear the days of whole family-themed costumes may be behind us. Last year, Hudson went as an astronaut and Skyler as a kitty (who looked a lot like a lion), so Aron and I went it together as John and Yoko. This year, the kids once again have plans of their own, so Aron and I have been scratching our heads.

Playing catch-up (& Monday Links)

That weekend came and went all too quickly! We were down in Palm Springs for most of it, and so I didn’t get a chance to log on and share the links I’d collected last week. We got home late last night, and today I’m unpacking and getting ready to volunteer in Hudson’s class for the first time this year—I can’t wait to get a peek at what’s going on in there. (I get very few details.) And tonight we’re riding our bikes to the Mondavi Center to see Hillary Clinton speak!

Because I’m still playing catch-up, here they are… a few days late. Hope your week is off to a great start!
